Twelve interactive workshops
Workshops are an important way to identify priority themes in research and strategy, and help to establish roles and timings within a specified framework. At LIAS, we facilitate two workshop formats; the LIAiSon series, and the CoNavigator kit.
The LIAiSon series offers funding to support workshops and focused meetings, intended to bring together expertise across the University of Leicester to address important, timely research ideas and challenges. Topics can be thematic, methodological, or practice-focused, but must invite interdisciplinary thinking or ways of working. Please follow the application process (PDF, 143kb).
The CoNavigator kits are interactive collaboration and problem-solving tools designed and developed by an interdisciplinary team of researchers from the University of Copenhagen. Focusing on group-specific themes, they overcome innate challenges of interdisciplinary collaborations in a democratic format. They are available to hire for workshops, please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org to inquire further.
